Justice for Victims and Offenders: A Restorative Response to Crime
This fully updated version of Martin Wright's thought-provoking work Justice for Victims and Offenders (first published in 1991 by the Open University Press) charts issues and developments affecting victims of crime from the earliest times to the modern day. It deals in particular with reparation, compensation and the evolution of 'Restorative Justice'.
This edition takes account of changes in the 1990s and includes an entirely new closing chapter in which the author reviews developments in other countries and puts forward further suggestions about the way many criminal offences might be better dealt with. It will appeal to a wide range of people with an interest in crime and criminal justice, particularly those who are concerned about the way lawbreakers are currently dealt with and victims treated.
